Chaos calls sweetly and the intelligent mind with the temper to unleash it tends toward disaster

Name: Barkshredbite
Gender: Male
Parents: Korulantis Diamis x Yleszt
Species: Shadow Hydra (1/2 Tris'Hath Hydra, 1/2 Shadowling of Destruction)
Origin: Abstract Destiny / The Twisted Fate
Chaos Quotient: 95%
Size: The more they eat the more they grow, but regular feeding should end up with a hydra between 20-30' at the shoulder at a couple years of age.
Description: A sleek brown hydra with black paws and a lighter beige belly. Shadows swarm around it like a black miasma of death. The crowned reigning head and the two subordinate heads are solid. The shadowy mass of their manes can shift and form up to fifteen other natural heads, which otherwise may only be glimpsed as eyes in the darkness...
Personality: Barkshredbite has three keywords: Chaos, Intelligence and Temper. Though he is very intelligent, he really has never even thought of reining in his desires. Why should he when he is an incarnation of destruction? And that bit of upping satisfaction is pure BS. He can be sated now and destroy something else later. There's no need to wait. His temper is awful and mercurial. His train of thought chaotic and he often changes direction mid-sentence.
   *Breath Weapons (Acid, Fire) The ability to breathe either a gout of fire or a spray of acid.
   *Destruction-Feeding, Rather than simply consuming meat, these hydras can destroy to feed. The most delicious and sustaining meals are the energies released when living things die, which they can absorb simply by being present. They can also consume any energies released when they enact their destructive powers.
   *Destruction Powers, These hydras are an incarnation of chaos and destruction. Destroying anything around them comes with natural ease, not from brute strength but from force of will.
   *Insubstantial Form, Although they appear solid, these hydras can will themselves into an insubstantial shape. Like a thick cloud of smoke or fog, they can barely be touched.
   *Natural Spellcaster, After reaching their first decade in age, the hydra begins to develop magical ability. The older they get, the more powerful they can become.
   *Shapeshifting, The ability to shapeshift into any other form, without limitation.
   *Telepathy, The ability to communicate mind-to-mind.
   *Teleportation, The ability to teleport anywhere within sight or that can be strongly visualized in the mind.
   *Verbal Speech, The ability to communicate in spoken words.


Barkshredbite floated through space. In his incorporeal form, he did not need to breathe. He had known this in his core. And it was also in his core that he knew there was a place to call home. Sadly, the coordinates of home were lost to him, but he knew he'd know he was there when he reached it.
One of his many eyes caught a small light that seemed to invite him. He needed no more invitation to speed down upon the planet and to set his destruction at work. Rocks turned to dust, water turned to ash, air burned and irritated as his breath weapon wreaked havoc on the local fauna and flora.
Barkshredbite laved himself on the demise of life, he feasted on the terror of the lives that were lost. And just as fast as he'd started, he lost interest and returned to space. A hole remained in his chest, the yearning for home once more the biggest drive in his mind. The planet he'd feeded from was left half-eaten, alive but barely so. Barkshredbite didn't look back, the place was already forgotten as he journeyed on.
A single word resounded in his mind: "Elsewhere."
That word sounded so pleasant. That was clearly where he needed to be, where he needed to go.
He was coming.
